Prof. Yao Yang's New Book "China and the West: A Pragmatic Confucian's View" Published


April 2023, Professor Yao Yang's new book "China and the West: A Pragmatic Confucian's View" has been published by Palgrave Macmillan.

About the Book
This is an authored volume of Prof. Yao's "big-picture" writings on China and the West, translated by David Ownby. Those writings are selected from his writings as a public intellectual, reflecting his thought on China's path of modernization and the effort to rebuild a political philosophy based on Confucianism, his interpretation of China's political system and his prescriptions to improve it. A moderate, yet influential scholar, Prof. Yao's work has had great influence on Chinese social and economic policymakers; his project of renewing China's traditional value system is an important position, as Chinese reforms begin to focus on equity and inclusion. In an engaging, at times personal, and thoughtful volume, Prof. Yao's vision of a gentler Chinese society will interest Sinologists, political scientists, and journalists.
